The bill amends the Colorado Privacy Act to add protections for
an individual's biometric data by requiring a person that, alone or jointly
with others, determines the purposes for and means of processing
biometric data (controller) to adopt a written policy that:
  • Establishes a retention schedule for biometric identifiers;
  • Includes a protocol for responding to a breach of security
of biometric data; and
  • Includes guidelines that require the permanent destruction
of a biometric identifier by the earliest of certain dates.
The bill also:
  • Prohibits a controller from collecting a biometric identifier
unless the controller first satisfies certain disclosure and
consent requirements;
  • Specifies certain prohibited acts and requirements for
controllers that collect and use biometric data;
  • Requires a controller to allow a consumer to access and
update a biometric identifier;
  • Restricts an employer's permissible reasons for obtaining
an employee's consent for the collection of biometric
identifiers; and
  • Authorizes the attorney general to promulgate rules to
implement the bill.
